National Geographic has posted this cool new video of an Amphioctopus marginatus, aka the Coconut or Veined Octopus, using a coconut shell as protective camouflage. I’m not exactly sure why it’s news, since I’m pretty sure this behavior has been well-documented for a while now, but this video is all kinds of awesome! (See my previous posts about the Coconut Octopus, here and here.)
Thanks for the link Natalie!
